I pity those that need this
on 13 January 2014
I have the perfectly average family; Mum, Dad, Boy 1, Boy 2 & Cat. We're all relatively busy with work schedules, clubs, meetings, days out etc and use a wall calendar for all the birthday and day to day reminders that you'd expect with the average family.
I bought this because now and again the 1x1" square of a normal calendar isn't enough to fit in all the notes for a day.
However, this thing is massive! Each day is a new line with an area for each of 4 family members and even a spare. It means that it's very long and a bit unwieldy (perhaps twice the size of a 'normal' one).
Every now and again this extra space is useful but in my case most of the time it was much too much space and we ended up with a lot of blanks.
I also found that because of the date list style format it wasn't as easy to glance through at the days/weeks ahead, i.e. normally you can see each Friday because they are all below each other etc, but this is just a long list of days...
If you need this level of detail and this much room on a calendar then you must have the MOST hectic lives ever and you have my sympathies as it must be hell! We do like the included sticker sheets, which we're now using on a bog standard 'Gardening tips' calendar which was £1.99.
Wouldn't buy again but perfectly good if you have a family where every member has something noteworthy going on every day.
